New England Medicine & Counseling Associates (NEMCA) is a mission-driven organization committed to treating all patients respectfully while providing affordable and reliable treatment for opioid dependence. We believe that every patient can recover from opioid dependence and our goal is to give everyone this opportunity in a nonjudgmental setting.
Treatment Options Available
NEMCA employs group therapy, medication management, and individual physician visits. By combining all of these treatments, patients relapse less and are better prepared for life after medication treatment. Medication is an important tool to use on the path to recovery.
Patients must work hard and participate on many levels. Therefore, every patient participates in either one-on-one counseling, or in a monthly group therapy session led by a specialized counselor, physician, or addiction specialist. These sessions are essential for building the skills needed for successful recovery.
We respect that the decision to enter recovery is not an easy one and takes an enormous amount of work on your part. NEMCA supports you in this decision. We also know that we can only help patients who are ready to take responsibility for their recovery.
Patients will be given a drug screen at each session. Random pill counts and random drug screens are also used to track patient progress and compliance with program policies.
Once patients are established with NEMCA, the commitment is once a month for a one-hour session. During this hour, a patient will see the physician, participate in counseling, and undergo a drug screen.
Programs that provide structured counseling that is focused on substance dependency have better outcomes than do programs that provide little or no counseling. We offer both group and one-on-one counseling options.
Our program structure is based on a monthly design that allows those in recovery to live their lives while in treatment. We work with patients to find a time that best fits into their schedule. With your partnership, we will make a drug free life not only a possibility, but a reality for you and for those who care about you.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the gold standard for treating opioid dependence. It reduces annual mortality by one-third, reduces infections transmitted by IV drug use, and decreases health care costs.
Our opioid recovery program consists of a combination of counseling and medication. Our patients will see a physician at each monthly visit and will participate in a monthly group therapy session.
NEMCA physicians, counselors, and staff work with patients to provide them with the support they need. Patients are able to take advantage of additional counseling hours if circumstances arise that jeopardize their recovery. NEMCA staff are dedicated to your recovery.
